Hardships are: tests that show your worth. They are occasions to show who you truly are. You are either a person who succeeds in the attempt or fails. In life with no struggles there's no gain because we learn from our struggles.
Some people say that usually when you’re in a difficult situation where there are many obstacles and disadvantages in your way, you should either give up or just move to somewhere else where the situation is easier. I’ve heard this from more people than I can count and there are still many more with different ideas, but that lead to the same conclusion as said above. No matter who you are you apparently can’t win through a situation like this; however, I learned otherwise. I’ve recently learned from many experiences in life that whatever situation you’re in with obstacles
“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” Booker T. Washington
Barriers throughout someone’s lifetime could shatter them, or help them to build and become a better person. Either way, it is a decision one makes on their own. Some people’s hardships are worse than others, but that does not mean it was not tough for them to handle. Conflicts could even help shape the person going through a tough time. Simone Biles was determined to become stronger from her challenges, mentally and physically.
Numerous people stumble upon obstacles, but only a few can overcome them. Most obstacles are influenced by the values of the society. In The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Liesel Meminger overcomes her lack of education and her different beliefs on Jewish people. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet both overcome the obstacle of not being able to be together because of the feud between their families. In “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros, Esperanza overcomes the obstacle of not fitting into her society because of her lack of money. Liesel Meminger, Romeo and Juliet, and Esperanza all overcome many big obstacles influenced by their society.
It is important for people to overcome the obstacles they are faced with. Obstacles allow us to learn and become successful. In novels a character will often be faced with a problem. Just like a book, everybody has their own story filled with challenges. Recently I have read two novels that deal with sensitive topics and obstacles. Several years ago my grandma had very serious health issues. Each of these examples showcase the fact that it is important for everybody to experience obstacles in their life.
Overcoming advers requires being brave and noble. Also, being able to look on the positive side in life in tough situations. Overcoming illnesses, disabilities, or disfunctional families can be very hard to deal with. Sometimes you just need to keep going and not look back and by doing so a lot more opportunities may appear in life. Christy Brown in My Left Foot, Bethany Hamilton, and Jeanette Walls in The Glass Castle are all examples of people who had to deal with great hardships in order to push them to become the successful and mature people that they are today.
Everybody has challenges, everyone has some obstacles in their life. Some are bad, some are little and then there's some like Cancer. I can provide some devastating examples of a life obstacle like cancer.
Imagine a person, lying on his or her deathbed. Throughout life, this person accomplished nothing whatsoever because there was no instance where he or she needed to leave his or her comfort zone or figure out life. Often times, situations like these can happen to people because they spent their entire lives avoiding scenario after scenario. In Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen, one of the central topics addressed in the novel is finding solutions to problems in life. The protagonist, Cole, overcomes serious problems he has and, in turn, makes his life more agreeable. Not only does Cole tackle tough situations, but other supporting characters such as Peter and Cole’s mother do so as well. Peter has to overcome the damage that Cole has inflicted
Though, obstacles are a constant part of our daily lives, overtime, we learn to cope with those obstacles. We discover how to jump every hurdle, or to simply walk around them. Granted, it seems that the biggest hurdles come when you try to achieve personal goals. Until you are an adult, there are rarely any decisions you make that are your own. There are usually constant factors that may influence you. It could be teachers, parents, friends, or society itself. Although endurance can be a helpful asset, it has its limits. Do you intend to go to work every day to a job you don't like only to look your boss in the eye as you apologize for killing time? Do you want to wake up next to person whom you may not love? To walk down the aisle, each step
“Perseverance isn’t one long race; it is many short races one after the other.” - Walter Elliot. When someone is facing their idea of impossible, they must overcome many small bumps in the road and when they get over that small bump it can make them believe in themselves and make them stronger as a person. But perseverance can be well worth it in the end. Through determination, we can learn why perseverance is essential to making us stronger both mentally and emotionally, but we can’t just understand why but also how perseverance help in making us the strongest people we can be. However being persistent not only affects us as individuals but it also affects our communities and the society we live in. At the end of the day perseverance one
Challenges. People go through challenges everyday, they can either be easy or hard. Challenges can be the smallest bump in a person’s day or it can be something major. People learn and achieve something when they go through challenges in life and it ends up making them stronger.
Obstacles are something that every living specimen struggles with on a day to day basis. They are the mountains of sand one is forced to overcome whilst walking through the endless Sahara desert of life. Saying that these monumental hills affect one as a person is an understatement, they are more of a drastic transformation leading to the person that is yet to be formed. It’s as though humans have an outline for where they’re going in life, and factors along the way act as an eraser, forcing them to take out their pencil and draw something new. Sam Watkins is one of the many examples of someone merely trying to make it through the desert with never-ending hills. The figurative eraser hits him at various times throughout his period in the the Civil War; from coming to the realization that his commanders were cowards, to witnessing the definition of a carnage war, to finally grasping the fact that soldiers are but another pawn
Everybody always has dreams in their own life, some dreams are achievable and some are not. People without self-confidence are always scared of chasing dreams because failure is like nightmare in their minds. Nevertheless, those people will never know what did they give up, their crystalline dreams. On the other hand, people with enthusiasm always chase their dream without reasons because they will feel regret if they didn’t try; they may be successful however when they try to challenge themselves. Thus, it is important for people to chase their dreams, challenge themselves and achieve their goals.
As we all know, the way to success is full of obstacles and difficulties, and you need to try your best to handle these problems and persist achieving final goals. There are many examples such as Thomas Edison, one of the greatest scientists in the world, spent several decades inventing the battery. Though he failed so many times, he never gave up but persisted testing for thousands of times, and finally he succeeded in inventing the battery. However, if he gave up when he faced problems, we cannot enjoy the benefits of the battery as so early. What makes him a giant in the invention field is that his
